alot of spear houses line the northern shore by the public access.. if you look out east further those are houses chasing sunnies and crapples on the flats.. I used to have a cabin there a few yrs ago so I know the routine.. lol

Went out there last night, sat from 400 in the afternoon till 1030 at night. Caught maybe 25 crappies, they were all real small. Not big enough to eat all were thrown back to grow. Pretty busy out there though.

It was bout 10-12 clear with about 2-3 in cloudy on top. We fished 20 ft off of diamond point. It was real rough on top of the ice slush froze bad. Pretty busy out there especially after 5:00

Any new news on Suak Lake since the 1st? How thick is the ICE? Fishing report at all? We have a cabin on the lake and are first time Ice-Fishermen. We have the case of beer. And are set to go \:\) Any help would be appreciated.

A member of my family is out almost every day, and there aint much going on, but then again we are fishing for walleyes. I have heard that the crappies are bitting but there is no size to them.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
